Supposedly Monday’s Q329 will have a loaded welded rail train out of Detroit to deliver to the GLC at Howell. 7 miles worth of new welded rail!

Be interesting to see if they drop that off in Howell or in Lansing for D708 to drop off

Y106 eastbound at Fox 10:10. Q329 currently lined as far as west end Lake Odessa.

Also, spotted CSX 1213 in Wyoming yard yesterday evening. This is the first MP15 I've seen up here in years. Look for it on Y297 tonight.

As the post above this stated plus another further back, Q32917 was in Howell for over an hour this morning setting off a loaded Herzog ballast for someone someplace on GLC, the lead car 19 behind the head end. Only 12 cars including the unloading car, but they are all long eight axel cars similar to intermodal spine flats. Two of the car numbers were HZGX 51049 and 5075. Q329 departed Howell at 09:40 with CSX 867+373 and 29 cars. Earlier, Q32817 went east by Howell at 07:12 with CSX 112+5475 but with only 12 cars. 328 may have set off quite a bunch at Lansing due to at least 40 scrap tie loads for GLC that was on Q326 yesterday.

Speaking of, CSX MP15 switcher 1213 that came into GRP on Q326 yesterday, have not seen that one in person in nearly 26 years, last seen in Jacksonville Florida on 10-22-92 when it was still in YN1 paint at that time. Been a LONG time since a switcher has been used in GRP.
